I travel to Bangkok and BTS was my main mode of transportation. A lot of people but very convenient and less hassle.

Traffic in Bangkok can be terrible so the Skytrain is a great way to avoid it. The trains are clean and relatively spacious, with good air conditioning which is essential! Very reasonably priced and the perfect choice if it goes where you want to be....More

The BTS skytrain is absolutely great! Queue up and get in. The clarity in the maps and ticketing makes it easy even for a first time tourist.

The BTS is a good public transportion system. Some of the stations now has ticket vending machine that accept notes. Very convenience. Good public transportation system that connects the various tourist spots.

You can get from the airport link to the city much faster than a cab. Only problem is it closes later in the evening. Otherwise, the smart way to move about the town.

Taking the BTS is easy and much faster than taking a taxi or Grab as it does not Jam. The only downside is that it's very very packed during peak hours and you will be squeezed.

Gets you from A to B easily. Trains are clean. Plentiful. Easy to use. Found it was much more convenient than travelling around on the roads.

Easy to move around in Bangkok getting to places or connect to bus/taxi. Easy to buy tickets via machines.

Not that I’ve seen. There are three types of machines; basic ones at every station that accept coins only, and two larger types at some stations that accept bank notes.
